In recent years, beauty circles have become more interested in achieving fuller, more voluminous lips. But for someone new to the world of aesthetics, finding a procedure that works for you can be pretty daunting. At L-Aesthetics & Longevity, we offer two options to help you get natural looking, beautiful lips!
Juvederm Ultra is our go to lip filler at L-Aesthetics & Longevity. These injections add volume to the lip, and typically last about 12 months. If you know you want long-lasting volume, filler might be just what you need! The appointment only takes 1 hour; half of the appointment is time numbing your lips, and the other half is the actual injections. You can expect to see your final results after 2 weeks. Juvederm fillers help stimulate the body to produce collagen, giving you more plump and voluminous lips!
The Lip Flip is a procedure done using Botox to create the appearance of a fuller lip without actually adding volume to the lips. A small amount of Botox is injected around the top lip, which causes the muscles in the area to relax, and the lip to “flip” upwards. This helps create the look of a fuller top lip without actually adding any volume to the lip itself. Results from a lip flip typically last about a month, which is great for those who might be hesitant to jump right in to Juvederm fillers. The procedure takes about 15 minutes, and then results appear in about 7 days.
Which option is right for me?
It depends! Typically those looking for a more enhanced, voluminous lip will want Juvederm fillers, whereas those who want a less gummy smile and a more subtle enhancement might be interested in a lip flip. Sometimes our injectors combine both procedures to both add volume and flip the top lip. The best way to find what works for you is to come see one of our wonderful injectors for a free consultation!
